The University of Pennsylvania’s Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts is calling for papers for the conference on Digital and Archival Approaches to Theater History. The conference will take place in honor of the first year of the NEH funded Philadelphia Playbills Project on January 17-18, 2019.
The Comparative Drama Conference will be attending Mad Cow Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls on Thursday night (April 4th). In honor of that event, the Board announces a call for papers that discuss Top Girls or any other Churchill play, so that our conversation about Churchill continues onwards from the performance itself.
David Henry Hwang's latest work, Soft Power, which is, as he describes it, a play with a musical, had its world premiere in Los Angeles in May of this year. Undoubtedly, Soft Power, which tells of a love story between a Chinese movie producer and Hillary Clinton, is Hwang's most overt piece of political theatre, written in response to the election of Donald Trump to President. The David Henry Hwang Society invites asbtract proposals that examine Hwang and his plays in relation to his and their engagement with politics. In other words, just how political is Hwang as a playwright?
In addition, the David Henry Hwang society invites any proposals that cover Hwang and his works in general.

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.
